Los Caidos is Spanish for The Fallen and it comes to us from Steve Zengel who made the cigar at the Aganorsa factory in Nicragua as an extenson of honoring one of his closest friends, Chris Duncuff who lost his life on 9/11.
In addition to honoring his friend, Los Caidos honors the fallen with its unique box design. Upon opening the 12 count box you will notice one cigar is missing. That open space is resrved for the End of Watch cigar, a cigar that is to be enjoyed by the person you are honoring and remembering for it is the belief of Los Caidos that the person will be lighting up with you from above.
Additionally, when you pull out the first cigar you are left with 10 cigars and two empty spaces, creating 10-0-0 which is the NJ police code for officer down.
The two blends are the same, the blue denotes the police department and the red denotes the fire departmet. For each cigar sold, $1 is donated by Los Caidos to family members of fallen police and firefighters.
The cigar offers a classic full bodied Nicaraguan experience loaded with tobasco notes, cedar and cinnamon. It's strength is a testament to the bravest and the finest.
